Trying Not to "Shove Religion down Their Throats"
Religious Education, v110 n2 p198-211 2015
This article attempts two tasks. First, to clarify how the claim that colleges and universities may "shove religion down students' throats" has a historical background. Second, to indicate how pedagogical strategies--like service learning, discussions, paper revisions, and "Just in Time Teaching" exercises--can be used in ways that both effectively teach theology and address the claim of students that classes in theology are coercive.
